Here’s How OTL Seat Filling Works!

The Seat Filling Process

1. Submit the basic show or event information via the event submission form on this site.

2. OTL posts the show information in the private member area (photos, description, attire, etc. is included).

3. Show alerts are also sent to OTL members via email.

4. Interested OTL seat filler club members make reservations in their member area.

5. A complete reservation list is sent to the venue on the day of the show, event, or activity.

6. Members present their ID at the Box Office (or other designated area) to pick up their complimentary tickets.

7. More patrons are now in attendance. Seat Fillers tend to buy food, beverage, and merchandise and make great audience members.

Note: OTL is now offering members other experience-types of opportunities and will alter the process accordingly. If you want to offer something like a class, massage, wine or liquor tasting, escape room, or other type of activity or freebie, please use the Experience Submission Form.
